Don Back For Lifeline Day

19 August 2013

With our game against Stevenage being sponsored by Lifeline, we were keen to secure a former player with strong links to the club's successful fund-raising scheme.

Nobody fits the bill better than Don Masson - for two very good reasons.

The highly gifted former Scottish international (he won 17 caps) was among the Notts players present when Lifeline was launched on a memorable night, Monday 15 September 1986. 

And to this day he's remained a contributing member of the scheme.

BBC Radio Nottingham’s Colin Slater will interview Don in Wheeler’s Suite before the kick-off against Stevenage.

Lifeline apart, their conversation is bound to touch on Don's unique record of having captained Notts to three promotion triumphs that took the club from the fourth tier to the top flight of the English game and on his remarkable scoring record for a mid-field player.

In his two spells at Meadow Lane Don made 442 League and Cup appearances and scored 96 goals, his outstanding season being 1969.70 when he was top scorer with 23 goals in 43 appearances.

Lifeline members can join Don in pre-match hospitality at a discounted rate, as a big thank you for their valued support through the scheme. 

For just £27.50 (+ VAT), members and their guests, who also qualify for the cut-priced deal, will get to enjoy VIP access, with a two-course carvery, pay bar facility in the Wheeler’s Suite and entry to the Man of the Match presentations after the full time whistle. 

Lifeline members with a season ticket can upgrade to Gold Hospitality at a discounted rate of only £10 (+ VAT) per person.  

Therefore please contact the commercial department as soon as possible on 0115 9557 241.

Members must quote their Lifeline membership number. 

*Regular prices for Gold Hospitality are £37.50 (+ VAT) and £20 (+ VAT) for a season ticket upgrade.

Lifeline is a big supporter of the club, having donated in excess of £100,000 each year since its launch in 1986.

This is made possible by the backing of the Magpies’ fans, who pay £2 every seven days to enter the weekly draw for prizes of up to £10,000. 

Don will draw out a winner of £1,000 at half time on Saturday. To be in with a chance of winning, click here.
